TunePics: Music Network for Instagram Lovers Have you ever wondered how Instagram may sound? Well, the developers of TunePics definitely did and as a result this new app (or social network, or both) was conceived.

When Instagram Meets Google

Instagram and Google: Best Friends Forever Can social networks have accounts in social networks? – Yes, they can, it is because they want to get truly social. Not a very smart joke, yet it is true. It is believed, that on the occasion of celebrating the 40th jubilee of the Rubik’s Cube, Google has officially opened its account on Instagram. Right now the account features only one video, it is a Vine dedicated to Google Doodle, and thus it may be qualified as a kind of regram post (no, in the sense of technical details it is OK, though). Well, hope with time Google will acquire more original Instagram-ing skills. The opening of the account was announced on Twitter, and currently it has about 5,000 followers all over the world. Why people follow anyone, be it celebrity or brand account, on Instagram? They usually want to get a more realistic

SketchVid: New Tool for Rookie Animators and Painters Perhaps everyone once in a while wondered how the art masterpieces are created, yet very rarely we had an opportunity to watch the process in reality. Now developers of iOS Apps have definitely decided to make their childhood dream come true and came up with SketchVid, an amazing app which allows not only seeing how the miracle is born but also creating pretty nice animations for Instagram. All is simple: you draw all over the photo or just outline its shapes, or even draw from the scratch (if you are lucky and have a gist for it), the app records the strokes as they appear under your pen (or rather stylus) and turns them automatically into a 15-second clip, your key to fame. As one user said, she was no good in writing with stylus over the iPhone touchscreen, not to mention

Everlasting wars: Instagram overruns Vine with “more personal” Explore feature

3 years ago 0

Video Wars: Instagram vs Vine with new Explore feature Instagram never stops making our life better – or at least it says so. Everything gets personalized today – Google search, Facebook ads, etc., so Instagram also introduces a bit of personalization into our life: its Explore page from now on is designed to give priority to pictures and clips gathering likes from people who you follow, that is whose taste you recognize as a standard. Instead of offering you typical stuff shared by everyone around the world, like “share-it-all” Vine does, Instagram “explores” your preferences and adjusts its search to meet the requirements you have and satisfy your own taste. One of the Instagram co-founders, Mike Krieger, dropped a hint on Facebook so that people knew where to look for changes. He invited Insta-lovers to visit the Explore tab and see how the developers teem integrated feeling of personalization into
